I was given a copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.
On the run and hiding from ‘the suits’, Carolyn’s life is far from straightforward. After her mother and brother go missing in a most extraordinary way, (through a hole to another world which appears in the kitchen wall!), she is determined to track them down and bring them home. But life is never that easy! Rescued and protected by a group of unusual and likeminded ‘people’, Carolyn hones her magic and fighting skills. Whilst answering a ‘call’ to retrieve a human from another world she’s faced with a quick decision and ends up bringing a demon back with her. Little did she know what effect this demon would have on her. As each day passes her strengths grow and her magic develops to assist her in her quest to track down her family, but there are decisions to make that will affect the rest of her life.
I haven't read many YA fantasy books but this was a good one to add to my list. The main character, Carolyn was a strong, gutsy heroine who was determined to find her mother and brother after they had been "taken" into another realm by demonic creatures and proved that girls can be just as tough as boys, when it comes to fighting the bad guys!
This book was a refreshing read and quite satisfying regarding magic, mystery and demons. It certainly kept me entertained throughout.
I think Louise is a talented writer and I'll look forward to reading the next book in the series.
3 out of 5 stars.
